Renaissance

Each year, Westmont High celebrates the academic growth and achievement of its students through the Renaissance program.

Committed to Rewarding Excellence

The Renaissance program is a concept and attitude.  We are working to increase student achievement and celebrate success.  Ultimately, we hope to one day have 100% of the students on campus become part of Renaissance.

Westmont High School is proud to join many other schools throughout the nation in making a commitment to student academic excellence and self-improvement through Renaissance. WHS has been a part of the Renaissance program for one year and has already seen growth in academic achievement.

Students are rewarded for consistent achievement and turning around a negative academic record. Both are incredible accomplishments and allow the school to come together to celebrate doing well in school, no matter what their past situation was.

Three Major Goals. . .

1              To focus on and emphasize academic excellence

 

2              To recognize and reward student achievement

 

3              To recognize and reward staff achievement
